I have just done something that makes me incredibly nervous. I have registered for Microsoft’s 70-536 certification exam. The English title is: “Microsoft .NET Framework – Application Development Foundation”. The exam is covering a lot of what I did in my C# Programming course and now in my Advanced C# Programming course. Under most circumstances I would have never even considered taking this exam, but Microsoft has made an offer that I can not turn down, they are offering me the ability to take the exam for free as part of the DreamSpark program. I am a little nervous about this because it has been over 4 years since my last certification exam. On May 29, 2009 at 1PM, I will bite the bullet and take another one.
One of the biggest things making me nervous is that I have to find a new testing center. My old New Horizon’s testing center is no longer a public testing center and my contacts inside the organization have long since moved on, leaving me with no other option than to seek going directly to Prometric. I don’t know why, but all of this is making me feel so young again.
